7 weeks since i quit

Hey there . I like your post very much i am 26 years old and been 7 weeks dealing with withdrawal and ever since i caught my first symptom(and i caught all of them ) the most 2 i'm stuck with right now is shortness of breath and a bit of anxiety but i am a truck driver , so being out on the road and grabbing fresh air really helps a lot . With every symptom i had motivated me even more to ever smoking again and i am so proud of myself and to say that i quit cold turkey and i have the will power to plow trough because my health comes first . I see my life so clear now and is a brand new me! I hope i can share my concerns and thoughts with other people and help in anyway i can my only concern is if i caught a lung disease or emphysema or anything due to smoking who knows . I did get 2 xrays in the past 7 weeks and the last one was just like 3 days ago and the doctor said my lungs are clean . But i would consult this with my primary doctor . My email is :o

  • Hi Jose

    Most of us would give our right arm to be only 26 years old and giving up smoking.

    This is such a stupid expensive and dangerous habit.

    It has no benefit only to serve itself. Keeping you addicted.

    Stop now, never look back.

    We have all been slaves to this terrible and pointless habit.

    Look and read our stories of struggle and regret.

    Giving up is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

    If you ever get tempted , buy some nicotine gum and give yourself a kick.

    But remember Not One Puff Ever

    Enjoy your life :-)

  • Well said and absolutely you are most certainly correct my friend . When i look at my bank account i feel good hehe ! But hey i quit cold turkey and is the best way to quit . Because you go trough the pain but it haunts you to never smoke again. It is a stupid habit and it makes no sense why people do it . It has even cut me back on drinking alcohol. I been 3 months free of that as well . I wish the best to you as well . A smoke free life and a happy new years ! :)

  • BRAVO
